General opinion: This town in the French Pyrenees is a holy place of pilgrimage and prayer for Catholics as the Immaculate Conception appeared there 150 years ago. It is a place of internal peace and spirituality so it is not a place to go to for nightlife... unless au flambeau processions are what you are looking for. It ranks 2nd after Paris as the most visited French location. That says enough for its attraction.

General opinion: It is a very cultive place with lots of uncharted mountain areas to go hiking and motorcycle riding. It doesnot have much Tourism to offer, but it is home to many Exporting Companies from around the World.

General opinion: Spiritual place but being destroyed with the lack of quiet respect towards and around the grotto keep the young people partying away from the way to and from the grotto... spiritual fulfilment is affected

General opinion:  Lourdes is situated in the south-west of France at the base of the Pyrenees. The population of this town is only 17,000 but it sees an astounding 5,000,000 visitors every year. It is surrounded by three peaks over 1,000 m in height and dotted with numerous farms.
Lourdes enjoys a slightly extreme climate with warm summers and cold, dry winters. The mountainous region also sees snow and frost in the winter. With temperatures averaging at 20°C, June to September is the best time for travel, but there may be heavy rainfall.
Lourdes was originally a fortified market town. ... More In the late 1800s, a sighting of the Virgin Mary by a village girl, Bernadette, turned it into one of the most important Christian pilgrimage sites. Today, the commercial exploitation of the pilgrimage disappoints many visiting devotees.

General opinion: Lourdes is my favourite destination. I feel at home whenever I go there. It is very safe. One can find anything you need from grocers to pharmacies and of course cafetterias. I find in Lourdes peace and relaxation. Clothes there are very expensive but I do not go really for shopping but to have a peaceful holiday.
